Guardiola: I've never met a striker who fights like Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he is going to learn a lot from Chelsea's new head coach Maurizio Sarri this season, Sky Sports reported.

Guardiola has previously spoken of his excitement to lock horns with Sarri in the top-flight throughout the course of the upcoming season and ahead of the sides' Community Shield outing this weekend, the Spaniard was full of praise again for his counterpart.

Guardiola wanted a replacement for Yaya Toure, allowed to leave on a free transfer at the end of last season, with Napoli's Jorginho identified as a top target.

He could become the first Premier League manager since David Moyes in 2013 in the same competition to win a trophy in his first game.

"We thought it [Jorginho] was done, but at the last turn, he made a decision to go to Chelsea". I saw the games against Inter and Arsenal and immediately I saw he got it, he did it. Brian McClair, who played for United from 1987 to 1998, told BBC World Service Sport: "You should, at some point, look as though you are enjoying it. Jose maybe enjoys himself internally but from a football point of view, the Manchester United fans would very much welcome to see him smiling and laughing at appropriate times".

"Yes, we were close, but in the end Jorginho chose to stay with Sarri", Guardiola said.
